Do you recognize this piece of art? It is Cuco’s EP cover for ’Chiquito’ illustrated by Ugly Primo. See. You already know his art and never knew it.

Ugly Primo has created custom pieces for Cuco, Bad Bunny, and so many other artists in the music industry. It’s like they are all elevating each other because that’s how Latinos do.

But it isn’t all serious work. He will take all kinds of artistic liberty and it’s amazing.

Just when you thought Bad Bunny had secured his tough guy persona, this Easter bunny comes around. Like, talk about showing off a softer side.

Tbh, the #1 Daddy mug for Daddy Yankee is perfect.

A el le gusta el cafecito, dale más cafecito. Even with sunglasses on, Ugly Primo caught Daddy Yankee’s sweet twinkle in his eyes.

Literally taking Maluma Baby to the next level.

Who knew Maluma could be such a daddy while still single. One thing is for sure, that baby looks well taken care of.

You can’t forget the Caribbean icons that gave the U.S. a taste of Latin music.

And it’s even better that her face is on a bag of sugar. Maybe it is too cliché but it never gets old.

Elvis Crespo as fabric softener just makes sense.

I feel like dancing but at the same time smell Downy so strong that it’s like I am currently doing laundry. Suavemente lavame.

He’ll even help you profess your love for Cardi B.

Who isn’t in love with this rapper right now? We can only assume she has love and fan letters coming to her everyday.

If you don’t know who this is, fuera! This guy lived on everyones TV on Saturday nights. It’s actually strange not to see him on the TV when you are making and eating dinner.

Ugly Primo even perfectly captured our childhood terror with a simple image called “El Trio.”

Suddenly you hear, “Te calmas o te calmo.” Not only are you now scared, you are confused. Like, you’re grown, living on your own but you still know mami can find you.

Obviously, El Diablote makes an appearance because it’s an honest representation.

I don’t remember this card, but diablote sounds like an understatement. If you win would you say buenas or magas? Guess it depends on what you think of your family/community.

Oh yeah, he also invented Tapendejo.

The weakest hot sauce known to man. It’s for all the people who think they are big and bad but really just watered down excuses for human beings.

Speaking of things that don’t quite make sense…

Are people still doing this? We hope not but the imagery is too perfect a representation that you’ll cry from shame.

But we all know who the real hero is, El Chapulin Colorado.

More agile than a turtle, stronger than a mouse, more noble than a lettuce, his symbol is a heart. At least someone is holding it down for us.

You can never go wrong with depicting a celebratory Lionel Messi.

This will get you up off your feet and clapping with your tios and tias. It’s just impossible to hear that song and not clap along.

Guillermo Ochoa is one wall Trump doesn’t want to mess with.

Trump asked for a wall and Mexico gave him one. I need Memo Ochoa to guard my girl’s DMs, thb. Nothing gets past him.

There’s always room to make fun of a old-school tradition, like baptisms.

In the name of the father the son and a modelo. The way tios welcome newborns to the family. Where’s the lie?

We do get moments to see Ugly Primo straight chilling, like watching the World Cup.

Unfortunately, his dreams of Mexico winning was destroyed and we’re afraid the community will never really recover. Hopefully Ugly Primo can bounce back from the defeat.

He even understands regular people’s lives, which is important to staying humble.

Ugly Primo has been gaining fame with his little skits. Here he shows how the Fourth of July goes down in the hood and it’s too real.

We may never know what the real Ugly Primo looks like, but at least we have the puppet.

His puppet has taken on a life of it’s own. Make sure you keep up to see what shenanigans he gets himself into.

A Recently Shared Letter From Frida Kahlo To Diego Rivera Details Her Struggle The Day Before Having Her Leg Amputated And It Will Break Your Heart

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera have been known for having one of the art world’s most notoriously turbulent marriages. Both artists were guilty of having multiple affairs and straying away from their marriage, breaking up and getting back together only to become one again. Yet, despite their hard times, the Mexican artists had a bond that transcended the ages and one that has stirred countless discussions about their passion and love.

In a series of love letters from Kahlo to Rivera published in The Diary of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait readers are given insight into both the anguish and longing that was woven into their marriage.

One letter, recently shared by the Instagram page @historycoolkids, shows a momentary rift in their marriage when Kahlo was preparing to have her leg amputated.

Written in 1953, the letter for Rivera was written while Kahlo was in the hospital.

It reads:

⁣”I’m writing this letter from a hospital room before I am admitted into the operating theatre. They want me to hurry, but I am determined to finish writing first, as I don’t want to leave anything unfinished. Especially now that I know what they are up to. They want to hurt my pride by cutting a leg off. When they told me it would be necessary to amputate, the news didn’t affect me the way everybody expected. No, I was already a maimed woman when I lost you, again, for the umpteenth time maybe, and still I survived.⁣

I am not afraid of pain and you know it. It is almost inherent to my being, although I confess that I suffered, and a great deal, when you cheated on me, every time you did it, not just with my sister but with so many other women. How did they let themselves be fooled by you?

Let’s not fool ourselves, Diego, I gave you everything that is humanly possible to offer and we both know that. But still, how the hell do you manage to seduce so many women when you’re such an ugly son of a bitch?

The reason why I’m writing is not to accuse you of anything more than we’ve already accused each other of in this and however many more bloody lives. It’s because I’m having a leg cut off (damned thing, it got what it wanted in the end). I told you I’ve counted myself as incomplete for a long time, but why the fuck does everybody else need to know about it too? Now my fragmentation will be obvious for everyone to see, for you to see… That’s why I’m telling you before you hear it on the grapevine. I’m writing to let you know I’m releasing you, I’m amputating you. Be happy and never seek me again. I don’t want to hear from you, I don’t want you to hear from me. If there is anything I’d enjoy before I die, it’d be not having to see your fucking horrible bastard face wandering around my garden.⁣

That is all, I can now go to be chopped up in peace.⁣

Good bye from somebody who is crazy and vehemently in love with you,⁣

Your Frida”

Despite the letter, Kahlo didn’t “amputate” Rivera out of her life completely.

In fact, in her last days, Kahlo lived with Rivera and even made a public appearance with him in a demonstration against the CIA invasion of Guatemala. After her death, Rivera stated that her loss was “the most tragic day of my life.” Three years after his death, Riva requested to have his ashes mixed with Kahlo’s (this despite the fact that he married again after her death). Instead, the Mexican government opted to inter his remains in Mexico City’s famous Rotunda of Illustrious Men.

The message from Kahlo is being celebrated by her fans on Instagram as the “best letter in history.”

Fans of Kahlo called her letter “badass” and the greatest they’d ever read. “She was such a talent and such a twisted soul,” one user wrote in the post’s comment sections.

That part where she wonders why Diego was able to be such a womanizer despite being an “ugly son of a bitch” does pretty much make her badass.

Someone Claims That They Discovered A Long-Lost Frida Kahlo Painting But Experts Don’t Agree

Someone Claims That They Discovered A Long-Lost Frida Kahlo Painting But Experts Don’t Agree

Frida Kahlo is one of the most iconic artists in global history. The Mexican artist was known for blazing her own path both in art and in society. One of her most famous paintings “The Wounded Table” has been missing for 65 years but one art dealer claims he found it.

A Spanish art dealer claims to have found a long-lost Frida Kahlo painting.

Kahlo painted “The Wounded Table” in 1940 and over the years it disappeared. It is unknown if it was returned to Moscow, was lost, or destroyed. All that is known is that Kahlo’s largest painting to that date is gone.

Cristian López Márquez, a little known art dealer in Spain, claims to have found the long-lost and highly sought after painting. According to La Voz de Galicia, the art dealers claims to have acquired the painting from some who settled in Spain from Mexico.

The painting is one of Kahlo’s most famous works of art.

The decades-long mystery about where the painting ended up does add to the allure of the claim. However, people are not convinced that the painting is a fake that is being peddled by someone who is after money by selling an inauthentic painting. To make matters more skeptical, the art dealer has very few details but is adamant about its authenticity.

“Time will give us the truth,” Márquez told AP. “Whoever proves genuine interest and the ability to pay the figure of 40 million euros, can spend as much time as wanted with their experts analyzing the work.”

Despite Márquez’s claims, art historians are very skeptical that the painting is true.

Márquez claims to have the painting safe in a warehouse in London. He has put the painting on sale asking for $45 million. No one seems to be biting but Márquez continues to say the painting is an original.
